Sew Embellished! Give-A-Way


To celebrate the publication of Sew Embellished!, we are having a blog tour.  Eleven bloggers are involved and you will have the opportunity to visit each of their blogs over the next 11 weeks to win a copy of Sew Embellished!  However, if you cannot wait, you can always go to your local quilt shop or Amazon to buy a copy now.  Or if you want a signed copy from me, head to my etsy shop.

In the book I have shared many of the techniques that I use to personalize my quilts.  I feel like I have said so much of this before, so without further ado, leave a comment and let me know if you have done any embellishing before or if this will be your maiden voyage.  REMEMBER that your comment must have an address where I can reach you.  Sometimes the address is a no reply blogger address.  You can have 2 chances to win if you are one of my Followers or if you sign on as a new follower.  I will be picking the winner next Sunday, May 6th.

Here is the list of blogs that are participating in the tour.  There are a variety of quilters and artists and I think you will enjoy the blogs if you haven't already visited.  You can enter to win a book at each stop.

  1. Yes, I do some embellishment with crystals and buttons, mostly. I could use more instruction so your book would be a perfect addition to my library. Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. I guess that you could say my embellishing style is simplistic and I could use a reference book to give me inspiration and ideas. Thanks for the chance - the book does look fantastic!

  4. Am a follower, and I don't think I've used embellishments on quilts. I do use it on clothing ie on pj's especially, to point out the front of the pants, I will put either pockets on the back, or I often used to put a button on the front. This way the little ones knew front from back. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. I sewed buttons on totes and bags. I have not jumped into it yet. This is new to me. I've only been quilting for two years and I like the bags and accessories. I will have to give it a try...Thanks for hosting Cheryl and I am a new follower..Judith, Texas @ reynoldsjm06@yahoo.com

  9. I too am a follower. I've embellished fabric pins and mixed media paintings but as yet have not tried it on quilts. Another tantalizing application to pursue! hawleyart@earthlink.net

  28. Thanks to SewCalGal, I have just found out about your blog and your books. I wish I'd been aware of them before, but I will certainly get familiar with them now. I am "creativity-challenged" and it will help so much to see what you create and how you've done it. Thanks!

  29. I have done a little embellishing and NEED to learn more!!! I got some polymer clay for Christmas and no resource showing me how to use it, so your book would be perfect for that too. I found out about you from SewCalGal's blog today, and am now following your blog.
